capital city clean up starting in 2007 started doing litter audits where we hired mgh management -- mark is the auditor who do our litter audits and now was doing our graffiti audits. basically, we looked at what we were doing on our litter audit and said there's got to be a more scientific, for lack of a better way, or statistical way of looking at how much graffiti was in a city and how we were really doing. so what we did -- so why do an audit? graffiti is a property vandalism crime. information we share from our audits are shared with bylaw and police and affect our enforcement and programming efforts. so what we're doing is taking the information that we gather from our audits and we're changing our programming accordingly. so i am able to track what's going on in each neighborhood to determine where i need to deploy my graffiti removal van, where i need to put my wipe out program, where i need to maybe come up with a mural, where i need to work with the arts council, whether i want to or not, pardon my expression, on free walls, which i don't agree with. but they have been ver
life when we went there in the middle of the mayhem. i saw endless doctors coming from all over mgh to offer their help in a very, very organized fashion. so, we absolutely had no problem with staffing. >> i would also add that the timing, some of physicians and nurses work from 7:00 to 3:00 and then 3:00 to 11:00 on the evening shift and the day shift all volunteered and said, we'll stay here as long as needed. so that helped us out, as well. >> and of the amputees, how many were traumatic versus in the hospital? >> almost all of them had such severe trauma in the lower extremity it was beyond salvation so i would consider them almost automatic amputees. we completed what the bomb had done. >> doctor, could you comment on what the last 24 hours is like for you, your staff as a doctor, as a member of this community? what's the experience been like for you? >> the experience is, obviously, overwhelming. we are all extremely sad. we are suffering emotionally for what happened to the people of boston and many others. at the same we can't feel but proud because the community responded i
the scene were extraordinary inn their efforts to get the injured to the hospitals in the area. tufts, mgh and brigham and women's tried to handle the influx of these patients with severe, severe injuries in many cases. we have a person who ran the e marathon and we're going to hear from them now and get that perspective. >> this is the fee sa fiancÉ ofa wonderful writer that we have here, lisa. sa her fee sa an fiancÉ ran that. t >> the race is canceled. >> you couldn't go underneatht e the final.the >> at that point something is severely wrong here. >> ir on your oin.in >> you're basically on your own. >> i got to 25 points, and then -- 5 points extra. ex >> right before the -- like i le said, i hope everybody is safe,s thank you. than >> that's the protective rightti there. you get so close, but i will say, you know your perspective s is when you look back and see se that, and know that people are e dead. >> exactly that he was able to o say, you know what the marathonn is great but i'm far more concerned with the people who wo are dead injured and today. to >> one of our reporters ra
arrived at our local hospitals including mgh. that entire area there near the finish line has been cordoned off, understandably so as police and fire investigators try to get to the bottom of exactly what happened and, of course, to keep people clear from the scene. we don't know the cause. we don't know why this happened. adam, you mentioned earlier a very good point to keep in mind. obviously our first thought when this happens, especially at an event like this, arguably the most known or most notable of marathons around the world, certainly one of them, that your first instinct is to say oh, my gosh, this was intentional. however, we do know as a result of the marathon because of all the television production and generators, possibly speakers that go into -- >> we're watching our boston station. that was just -- just then was one of the first times we've seen the actual video of the first explosion. you see a runner go downright in the foreground due to shrapnel. he appears to have a leg wound. and this would mean that the initial explosion was in the foreground toward us. the s
19 injuries at mgh. i would imagine boston medical center, brigham women's probably has as many people as well. >> we just spoke to byron barnett. he's seen six transported to boston medical center. add that to the 19. already we're above the total there. numbers are changing. minutes ago it was 22. now word there have been 23 injuries and two deaths. >> getting some new information -- >> on a day like this you look . we have some first class hospitals within very, very short distance. mass general being one of them. we've just heard discussed there in boston. and certainly the folks -- the folks who have been -- who become victims in this -- this explosion, you see there on tape replay, were triaged immediately. chuck todd can show us what's happening in washington, which, again, has become an almost standard reaction these days when something happens that we can't define right away. and a preponderance of cautious has to be enforced. pennsylvania avenue which was closed to vehicular traffic in the late 1990s has been closed to pedestrian traffic in front of the white house thi
to the area hospitals, one of which is mgh. we're getting word that patients are starting to show up here at local hospitals. any idea or can you give us an idea of what peep there, what the people are doing? are they trying to figure out what exactly happened? we know the explosion. we're trying to piece this all together. are you seeing more people try to get away, as far as possible? because we don't know what could happen? >> reporter: when i started talking to people, they were so upset. those were the folks closest to the finish line. they heard, saw, it was a very scary scene and they reported seeing the smoke and then taking off as fast as they could away from the scene. now, i'm watching as peep have exited that area and now they're just, most of them are either with family, trying to regroup or they're trying to find people. i'm looking over at the christian science center. there are several groups standing around. most are on their phones. they're trying to let loved ones know they're okay. they're giving them information, as much as they can. i would say they're trying to figu
. >> officer at m.i.t. was shot several times around 10:48 this evening. rushed to mgh where he lost his life. they say a suspect is still at large. they are still searching for that person but we have not seen any more sweeps of this area at this point. there are two police trucks -- police cars, cruisers, that i can see at this point where i am. the perimeter has not changed. it's still quite a distance back. where i'm standing is still several blocks away from where that shooting occurred. at this point we are the only media at this site. and most of the police have left. it has quieted down quite a bit and seems the focus has turned to the other areas. >> the m.i.t. website i keep going back to, the latest update came around 12 minutes ago, suspect remains at large, continue to stay indoors. so, even though as you say it's turned into a ghosttown and only a couple of police officers, they are still asking for their 11,000 students and faculty and anyone in that area to continue to stay indoors because they do not know where this suspect is. >> reporter: understandably because at this poin
be at least 23. more people out there as far as our staff is working the scene as well. let's go to mgh he have brenled dan fitzgerald on the phone to cover a world class sporting event now now covering a tragic news event. brandon? hell. >> hello? am i on? okay. i'm at mass general hospital here on the corner of cambridge and grove and they're still bringing by ambulances. liz: the very latest news now that two more devices have reportedly been found. they are unexploded but this in addition to two bombs that actually did go off right there at the boston marathon finish line. as some 26,600 runners and speb tatetores were clogging the area. whoever wanted to do this hit it just at the point where most of the crowds would have been coming through. clearly a very nefarious act. adam: when you have four devices. first at 2:50 and then 10 seconds later the second explosion, clearly somebody planted the devices and intended to do what we're witnessing this aftermath. the fbi and homeland security they have the ability of devices which have not exploded even remnants of things ones that have th
that number is probably going to go up, amanda, at least the injuries, we have 19 injuries at mgh and i imagine boston medical center, brigham woman's probably has some as well. >> we've seen six people at the boston medical center and we're already above the total. the numbers are changing. minutes ago it was 22 now we're getting word there have been 23 injury and two deaths. >> again, on a day like this, you look for silver linings, we have first-class hospitals within very, very short distance. mass. general being one of them we just heard discussed there in boston. and, certainly, the folks who have been -- who have become victims in this -- this explosion, you see there on tape replay, were triaged immediately by the medical professionals, who were there for the medical tent for the marathon, and then transported immediately to any number of hospitals in boston. chuck todd can show us what's happening in washington, which, again, has become an almost standard reaction these days when something happens that we can't define right away and a preponderance of caution has to be enforced
